Roll out the red carpet for the kings of groove: Bernard Purdie & Pee Wee Ellis!

We‘ve added important names to our JazzAscona 2018 program: it is with great pleasure that we announce the participation of two authentic funk and groove legends: dummer Bernard “Pretty” Purdie - in a band alongside Roy Bennett (ex Just Another Band, one of our festival favorites) - and James Brown‘s saxophonist, Pee Wee Ellis.

See the week‘s complete list.
